Kansas State upsets top-ranked Oklahoma, 80-69

MANHATTAN, Kan. (AP) — Kansas State coach Bruce Weber was so confident his team would beat top-ranked Oklahoma that he had his team practice what to do when fans stormed the court.

Weber should have let the fans in on the plan.

Led by Wesley Iwundu and Dean Wade, the Wildcats overcame a slow start to each half and beat the Sooners 80-69 on Saturday night. But when the final seconds ticked away and Weber's bunch jogged to the safety of center court, they were startled to see all those fans celebrating in the stands.
